The Street Fighter League: Pro-US 2019 Mid-Season Final is the culmination of a double round robin tournament series featuring six teams and spanning 10 weeks of action.

Second place will be awarded $15,000 and both third place teams will be awarded $6,000. Additionally, the two top teams will move to on to Season 2 where they will be joined by four new freshman teams.
Street Fighter League: Pro-US features 3-on-3 Street Fighter™ V: Arcade Edition team battles, with six teams formed from a mix of seasoned pros, online warriors and fan favorite players from the United States. The League features a unique to FGC “character ban” feature. At the start of each match, teams will have the opportunity to ban one character for the entirety of the match. Players must also choose different characters from their teammates for the duration of the match. The goal is for the teams to strategize the matchups in and out of game by working more closely as a team, especially if the best player may not necessarily get to play their best character exclusively.
